Trail mix

The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that the US farmers faced serious issues with the raising price of corn because it was increasingly used to produce so-called biofuels. As a solution, their hogs feed on a trail mix, chocolate and cookies. Apparently, this was going on for years in some areas, but it became widespread now. What kind of a sick world we live in when imported Brazilian nuts, Vietnamese cashews and Nigerian cocoa are cheaper than home-produced corn? I am sick and tired of a global economy.
